This week, Josephine got to have some fun with OG YouTube Queen: Liza Koshy. For those who don't know, Liza is one of the few many consider 'made the jump' from being a 'Youtuber' to the mainstream. In other words, Liza has been able to go from viral internet star, to mainstream media darling. She was recently on the red carpet of the Met Gala, interviewing our favorite stars and celebrities from TV & movies. Even Josephine knows who she is! And although Liza is no longer self-producing her own YouTube content, we dug up this fun little day of...

If you're into ballet at all, you probably know about YAGP - Youth American Grand Prix - even if you don't know you know about YAGP. Youth American Grand Prix is the world's largest non-profit international student ballet competition.

Josephine, meet Jo Jo Siwa! Although their names are so similar, Josephine has only caught a glimpse of the fabulous Jo Jo Siwa in past Dance Moms reaction videos. So this week, we decided to let them meet - digitally of course. Josephine watches Jo Jo take a dance class for the first time in several years. Similarly, Josephine has not taken a dance class in about 20 years either! She totally relates to the pre-class anxiety and drive towards perfectionism. How would you feel taking dance class for the first time in a while?
You asked for it...so here it is! Josephine watched a full episode of Dance Moms - the most ballet focused we could find, of course. (Due to copyright we couldn't show the ending dance in full). She got to see a baby Jo Jo Siwa and witness the true stars of the show...the Moms! In general, Josephine doesn't watch a lot of TV - no less, reality TV. But, she got hooked in. Wanna see why? Step into the chaotic world of Dance Moms with Josephine!
